Battlefront Arado 234 “Blitz” Bomber Review by Ignacio Herrero

Arado with extra fuel Belly Tank

The Arado Ar 234 Blitz (English: lightning) was the world’s first operational jet-powered bomber, built by the German Arado company in the closing stages of World War II.

Produced in very limited numbers, it was used almost entirely in the reconnaissance role, but in its few uses as a bomber it proved to be nearly impossible to intercept. It was the last Luftwaffe aircraft to fly over Britain during the war, in April 1945.

It was initially used for reconnaissance. Adolf Hitler considered it to be one of the wunderwaffen, or “wonder weapons” that would reverse his fortunes at a time when Nazi Germany was losing the war.

Hi folks.
Here comes a small update to my popularly acclaimed original PSC German truck review.
This time I’ll show you how the extra 5 German Trucks made of spare parts from the original PSC sprue come alive.
If you remember I told you it was pretty easy to build the free extra 5 trucks from the box, using some plasticard and cut sprue. The only missing key pieces to complete the spare trucks were the frontal wheels.
Ok, here comes to the rescue another brilliant Green Stuff product: Blue Stuff Moulds 4 bars. Read More
